The Lyrics

The obvious parody to this song. I'm nowhere near this bad about it.
Need I say it's trash day
I've got it piled high
Oh it crashed through the ceiling
Going to the sky

I don't want to be smelling that
Moldy bread, rotten fruit
'Cause I smell that bad cheese
The trash has gotta go

I'm passing out from the stench
It needs about five bags
I changed my oil recently
In the trash, lots of rags

Every time that I look at it
I know I have to dump it
Yeah I'll go to the dumpster
Was too lazy before

Just throwing the trash away, trashin' it all away
Is air freshener here today?
Get rid of meatloaf smell

I watch trash bags go round and round
And I won't turn them upside down
I'll throw the trash away

Now I'll dump it into darkness
The dumpster's huge trash pile
If it can all fit in there
I might be here a while

I'm by myself, so I'm the one
Who has to get rid of
The trash pile, wine that's stinky
Still I don't want that task

Otherwise I'm sorry
And trash takes over
I will have no room left here
So I trash it in a blur

Late at night, dumpster regurgitates
Throws it all toward me
I'm stuck with this trash forever
Sinking in the peas

I tried to trash it away, Tried trashing it away
I'll be stuck with it all my days
I'm trashing again today, yes more gradually here today
Hope I'm keeping the trash at bay

Some singers tend to sing in a way at the end of sentences (slide on the words you might say) that makes it less important to rhyme all the parody words there with the original. Despite the simple, low-key instruments here to overlap any vocals this is one of those songs, hence your parody works fine. I'll give it a 555 despite wishing for additional funny somewhere in it along the lines of "I'm so tired of trash I can't even be arsed to empty the trash bin on the computer" - or something like that.

Thanks Peter. I checked, it rhymes almost everywhere the original did. Cool comment.

This is such a hilarious parody! You put great humor in taking out rubbish! What cracked me up is when the dumpster regurgitates! I'll have to take out the trash tomorrow night and I'll be thinking of your parody while I'm doing that, especially when we have so many trash piled up! Hope you don't throw away those 5's that I'm giving you!

Thanks Christie. Yeah the regurgitating part just came to me as I was writing it. Thanks for the vote too!

Great job, Phil. For once I'm happy to say that this is pure garbage! (5-5-5) ;D
